“Teacher Dave is great because the classes are tailored to the student and you can concentrate on what you need most. I have learnt so much in a few short weeks. Furthermore, I have gained so much confidence in speaking Spanish that I never had before. This is because we chat in Spanish in an easy and relaxed manner. Dave gives so much time to your improvement and is really invested in your progress”.

You can have a 1-hour Zoom class with me completely free. 

Firstly, we will meet each other!

You can explain what things about English are difficult or complicated for you. I will show you how I can help you to improve.

Most importantly, we will have a REAL class of grammar, vocabulary, listening, or comprehension – whatever you want!


Not at all. 

All materials are provided free of charge. 

The only thing you need is a good internet connection, and a laptop or tablet.

I am a Doctor (PhD) of Linguistics with Spanish and English now, but I actually started Spanish as a hobby 18 years ago with zero idea of the language! I made all the mistakes, worked really hard, became an expert (a Doctor!) and developed the best ways to learn properly and retain what I learned.

As a teacher, I dedicate everything I do to show you how to improve, love the language and know what it’s like to be successful with it.

As one of my past students said:

Dave gives so much time to your improvement and is really invested in your progress”. – Hannah Sharky.


All of my students report an improvement in their very first class.

This is because all materials and activities are designed to make you get better immediately.


This is a complimentary Spanish class with absolutely no commitment.

I hope you enjoy the class and learn with me.

However, if you don’t want other classes, that is completely OK!
